Ghana’s Andre Ayew put up a man-of-the-match show to help ditch Everton at the Goodison Park as he scored the winner and assisted in his side’s first goal when they hosted Everton in their EPL game on Sunday afternoon.
Everton were unfortunate to have lost two men Kevin Mirallas and Muhamed Besic, through first half injuries and that looked like giving Swansea the confidence of attacking their hosts.
This made them worked for a penalty that they won from a tackle on Ayew. Gylfi Sigurdsson stepped up and converted with a right footed shot to the top left corner in the 16 minute for Swansea.
In the 26 minute, Everton equalized through an own goal by Jack Cork, to bring it to Swansea 1-1 Everton. It was assisted by Gerard Deulofeu with a cross following a corner.
Everton aside being their own enemies with some woeful play upfront which should have seen them claim a point at least, they also saw some bad referee decisions on Sunday as a penalty call was turned down and a handball by Ashley Williams set up play from which Ayew scored Swansea's second goal in the 34 minute from a left footed deflection which was assisted by Neil Taylor. Andre Ayew has now scored in four of the Swans' six wins this season.
Swansea’s Francesco Guidolin who is a former Udinese coach in the Italian Serie A, enjoyed some good rapport among his players who held the game up and played to instructions to clinch the much needed three points.
